NEW REHEARSAL ROOM PROJECT
Rehearsal Room is always looking for the opportunity to do something
different. Now theres a chance for Rehearsal Room actors to gain
more experience for free, through a feature film concept 'Rhyme
has designed this as a skill building project that is done just
for fun. The aim is to publish scenes on the internet as they
McBURNIE & REBECCA ASHA in the lip-balm kissing scene from
the previous project 'Forrest's New Beginning'
will give Rehearsal Room actors the opportunity to prepare scenes
and performance choices and shoot them in a similar way to a
fully fledged production. Unlike, 'Forrest's New Beginning' of
over 2 years ago (where each scene was one continuous shot) this
will be a dual camera shoot and scenes will be edited with a
traditional visual structure.
writer's, Ashley Harris and Jane Miller, have agreed to participate.
Jane is an award winning writer of short plays and Ashley is
completing an MA in script writing at the Victorian College of
the Arts. At this stage there is a general consensus about the
shape of the story and the next step is to work out the detail.
These story elements are currently being researched. Locations
are being found and we are beginning to approach cast.
is a FREE workshop and there are NO costs involved to participants.
Everyone is donating their services. It is a chance to build
skills and gather experience.
Rehearsal Room is looking for one or two people interested in
filling a production manager/1st assistant role on this production.
It will be shot sporadically in spare time on weekends and perhaps
over the Christmas break. There is quite a bit of work involved
in organising such a shoot so the more people who are prepared
to help the better. ARE YOU INTERESTED? Someone interested in
building their skill as a Director's Assistant/continuity person
would also be of great use.
Stay tuned for further updates.

Room Audition Workshop. Her improvement and consistency are now
clearly recognised and she recently was given a small role in
a show to be aired on Channel 7 in November. Just wanted to let
you know that the filming went well on Monday. It was great to
do the shoot and feel confident at the same time, something I
doubt that I would have managed prior to your classes.
trained actor JENNIFER
also has found Rehearsal Room process of great value. I haven't
been doing much acting lately and I was called in for an audition
at Mullinar's today. I went in and had to cry on camera. I did
it without a problem - over and over again. Simply using what
I learned at the Rehearsal Room.
PRESENTERS WORKSHOPS have also been growing in numbers simply
based on the word of mouth about the value of these classes.
The final exercise in this six week course is to make a show.
Presenters record an interview and also do introductions to their
story in locations such as Chapel Street. The quality of these
programmes is improving every time we do one.
